Nimble Fingers: OhSooCute Finger Puppets

OhSooCute’s crochet collection on Etsy seems to change too quickly to keep up! With many made-to-order items sold out almost as soon as they’re posted, I have to keep checking backfind the latest creations. Today I had an alien encounter at the farm…

These are part of an adorable set of nine characters, including roosters, bears, and bunnies, each sold separately for only $3.00 apiece. While you’re checking them out, take a peek at the Penguin Fingerless Gloves on OhSooCute as well; I’m partial to the blue ones.

After moving to Port Angeles, WA, Michelle put her crotchet skills to work making blankets to keep warm during the cold winter nights of the Northwest.  Very quickly, she built up demand from her neighbors whose spouses were stationed there during their military tour.  Since then she’s moved to California, and then Florida, where warm blankets were no longer needed, but parents love using them as snuggly blankets for newborns and small children.

Michelle is currently working on a set of blankets, booties, hats, and mittens for her own child, expected in December.  Let us know if you would like to see her make a special item and we will post it here for you.

Crochet Creations

My sisters Lauren and Michelle have been crocheting since they were “littles” doing everything from caterpillars, snowmen, pot holders, and various toys.  Lauren started working on hats for the last few years while going through college.  Now Lauren’s running with the idea of the hats and animals and has put together things like the Polar Bear hat, Owl hat, and even a try at Hiccup the dragon from “How To Train Your Dragon”.

Send us your ideas of different animals or things you would like to see in hat form.  Then we’ll post them here for you.
